    This untitled illustration by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Evening Star on September 4, 1915, depicts the condition of trade relations with the countries of South America. Due to the war in Europe, most foreign policy and business was directed there, which left South America to look elsewhere for trade. Trade relations with South America had long been problematic for the United States. As the war in Europe spread occupying the time and energies of most foreign policy and business leaders, South American countries began to look elsewhere for both import and export markets. Cartoonist Clifford Berryman portrays Uncle Sam as a green grocer standing in front of his shop, somewhat astounded by the comments of the plump and aging character representing South American trade who comments: "I'd like to deal with you but your delivery service is so bad." Clearly trade relations between the United States and South America would remain rocky as they sought each other's cooperation while Europe remained war torn. less
